I remember bits and pieces of a strange fairytailish movie I saw as a child. Couldn't get it out of my mind ever since. I remember at the beginning that there was a king and a queen who had a daughter, then a pack of talking wolves appears on a winter night and give them another baby girl.

Maybe they said something about a prophecy; I don't know. The two girls grew up together, one nice, the other evil. I remember the evil one talked to a crow or something? And there's a scene were she tries to mess with the pies her sister baked and another where someone gets a pie thrown at their head. I also remember that when they grow up, the evil sister steals(?) her sister's lover. There's a part where the evil sister blasts the talking wolves to dust and another where the good princess is disguised in red knight's armour that she takes off to fight her evil sister. Maybe there was a joust near the end of the film.

I've looked all over for this, but didn't come up with anything.

  • Do you recall, approximately what year did you see this?

It's The Dragon Ring (Desideria e l'Anello del Drago), Italian fantasy movie.

Desideria is the eldest daughter of the Dragon King and Queen, rulers of a powerful conquering kingdom. Selvaggia is the magical adopted daughter of the Dragon King and Queen, and although she is constantly playing tricks to get her elder sister in trouble, she is frequently praised as being the smarter and better daughter.


Desideria eventually ends up in the desert, where she is saved from the Witches of the Sand by none other than Prince Victor himself. She learns from him and other rebels in his camp that her beloved father is actually a cruel and vicious ruler. Just as she agrees to fight at Victor's side, Selvaggia casts a spell from the castle, causing Victor to fall in love with her and rush to join the tournament to win Selvaggia's hand.

(Also, I found a Russian-dubbed version on Youtube. The king finds the child in a wolves' den, there's younger sister messing with elder sister's pie, and a crow telling the younger sister that she must become queen.)

Here's the red armor:
